Kernel panic after updating to 2.6.22.1-27.fc7 kernel



Hi all,

many users have reported "no problems" after updating to the latest
2.6.22.1-37.fc7 kernel. Some users have reported issues like missing
WiFi or sound. The latter seem minor problems (not to those users,
however) in comparison with my experience: kernel panic at boot.

When rebooting after installing the new kernel, I only got as far as to
the point where it is said: "2 logical volume(s) in volume group
"VolGroup00" now active". After that kernel panics and either reboots or
freezes with screen full of: "<1>Unable to handle kernel paging request
at 0000000381281ac0 RIP:". 

Googling a bit revealed that similar problems have been around at least
since FC2 but I couldn't find any other reference to this latest kernel.
Neither did I find any real fix - other than reverting back to previous
kernel and/or installing a new kernel from rawhide.

For me this is a first; every kernel since FC4 has worked more or less
satisfactorily - and 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 still does. Therefore I'm not
going to bother you with details of my system (other than it is an AMD
Athlon64 using x86_64 packages).

FWIW, here's the list of my yesterday's updates (from yum.log):

Nevertheless, I'd appreciate any pointers in resolving the problem. When
installing the next kernel, I don't wish to be left with new kernel that
possibly won't work, and a kernel that definitely doesn't work.

TIA, Antti
